How many languages does Venus Williams speak?

Venus Williams is one of the finest tennis players of all time and has enjoyed a stories career. The American has won seven Grand Slam singles titles till date.

Given the global nature of the sport, it's not surprising that Williams has learnt multiple languages during the course of her career. Williams can speak a number of languages fluently apart from English. The 41-year-old learned French and German in school but can also speak Italian and Chinese.


A few months back, Williams promoted her father's biopic King Richard in French and her command over the language was quite impressive.
